larms in the 1990 gulf war but the people are not used to it. if you look at the people around gaza and the israeli cities there they have in a common place and the people here i would say somewhat in a mode of panic and now as i said the rocket appears to have hit an empty field and certainly what we can say is that it appears as though both sides in this conflict are upping the ante and not taking their foot off the gas. this conflict is escalating rather than deescalating >> i want to correct. i said there were three israeli soldiers killed. they apparently were injured and not killed. do you have any updates on the numbers who have been killed or injured in just the last few days of fighting? >> we have 24 palestinians killed including several children and elderly woman and that of course is inside the gaza strip and also as you said more than 200 people were wounded in those on going air raids. i can tell you i spent last night on the border and you could see it was lit up the entire night. as far as the israeli side is concerned, you're right, it is three soldiers wound when h

these people and the results of this investigation, fulfilling compasses obligation to provide oversight of us we had many opportunities to improve and provide better protection in these opportunities run the gamut from following behavior of those who are in charge entities like mf global, to monitoring and modifying the ways in which the ratings agencies do their business, to their job. and there have been so many failures in so many ways, not only in mf global, but in other, similar stories in recent history. one common strand seems to be that we need to provide our regulators with better tools to pursue the enforcement of laws that existed prior to the massive imposition of dog crank. we do not have infinite resources and our financial marketplace. we do not have infinite resources to pursue every aspect of what regulators might want to pursue in dodd-frank, but they need to be able to dedicate resources to better following the nature of transactions in this rapidly evolving marketplace into understanding how they can curb the excesses of human nature in the case of mr. corzine by a more ef

've been breaking this. tell us what you're learning tonight about david petraeus' testimony on benghazi. >> i've spoken to a source close to petraeus, directly familiar with petraeus' thinking on this matter. petraeus, we are told, wants to go to the hill, set the record straight and tell everything he knows. he will start by saying indeed that he knew almost immediately after that it was ansar al sharia, but there was also confusion. he had about 20 intelligence reports linking the attacks to that video, that anti-islamic video. those reports were disproven, but not until after he had briefed capitol hill. all of this took some time to sort out. that's what he wants to lay out tomorrow. >> and barbara, if he knew, and i know you're saying there were conflicting reports, which we have heard before, but if he knew and he's going to say he knew almost immediately it was the work of an al qaeda link ed militia, can he explain why susan right went on five talk shows and was very clear? >> the way it's going to lay out is pretase will talk about the fact he had cia intelligence community app
was the chairman of the whole committee. we had an emergency briefing on may 4, asking bp to give us accurate information with regard to the flow rate into the gulf. the answer to that question, to a very large extent, determined what the response would be on an emergency basis, to deal with the impact of the spill in the gulf of mexico, the harm that it would do to the ocean, the harm that it would do to see life, the harm -- to sea life, the harm that it would do to all those employed in the gulf. it is now clear that bp was lying to congress. they were deliberately lowballing the number, because liability is directly tied to the number of barrels that flow into the ocean. if they are guilty of ordinary negligence, they would be charged with $1,100 per barrel. at 5,000 barrels per day, that is a far smaller fine and 50,000 or 60,000 barrels project -- smaller fine than 50,000 barrels or 60,000 barrels per day. the range of the fine can number from $5 billion to $21 billion. the motive for the law is very clear -- for the lie is very clear, to minimize the overall impact on bp and the other

was responsible at the end of the day? appreciate it. nice to have you all with us. cnn "newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. >> good morning, soledad. david petraeus answers questions before congress on ben gauzi and maybe the affair that ended his career. >>> group of veterans, some wounded in iraq, are hit by a train and all during a parade in honor of them. now the feds are jumping in to investigate. and john mccain gets testy with a cnn producer when asked why he missed an important meeting about benghazi. >> i have no comments about my schedule, i'm not going to comment on how i spend my time to the media. >> wait until you get hit -- wait until you hear him get really angry. >>> what do spirit airlines and shirtless fbi agent in the petraeus scandal have in common? just wait. we'll show you more. newsroom starts now. i piercing sound of an air raid station. it is a chilling sound, becoming all too familiar as rockets continue to fill the air over israel and gaza and a planned cease fire, visit to gaza by egypt's prime minister may not be holding up. senior international corr
would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let the elevator door hit you on the way out. >> i mentioned before john, who i usually agree wit

fox news reporting and they reported within 24 hours, u.s. intelligence agencies monomania that the attack was an act of terrorism with ties to al qaeda, but had also identified and located one of the leaders of the attak. despite warnings hours before, state department e-mails reviewed two hours into the attack that the administration had been alerted that the terrorist group al sharia was already taking credit for the siege. and then the statement was made just 14 hours after that attack. >> you are rigt that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in egypt. and my suspicion is that the are folks involved in this who are oking to target americans from the start. lou: cbs did not air that particular statement. they waited weeks to release it. and another statement from a critical statement made by the president. contrary to the evidence, ambassador susan rice run on five talk talkshows five days later and told the american public that the murders of four americans in benghazi were not the result of a preplanned attack. the president made clear in
